I was hoping to post earlier this weekend but got a little bogged down, didn't even have time to read my bloglines! OH NO! I played a little catch up today with some blogs, but I have more to go :) thinking of you guys! I have decided to split this post up in three sections, Please feel free to read the sections that peak your interest and comment! BTW, blogger doesn't give me your emails so I can't reply to most of your comments... Sorry if you don't get a reply I do read all of the comments and I LOVE getting your input, Thank you:)

Section 1: Bone Marrow Transplant
Actually I should correct myself and say Stem Cell Donation...Chris went for his physical and did the "Orientation" with the National Marrow Donor Program. He had an "abnormal liver" read out on his blood work so they are getting back to him, it shouldn't hinder his donation though. So mark your calendars Chris goes the 13th and 14th of March and in that time frame the recipient will be getting mega doses of chemo.... This man is in his 50's and lives somewhere in Europe. Chris and he are never to know who each other are... They can write one letter to each other but can not reveal any identity. This is the rule of the Country that this man lives in. So there you go! Our entire extended family already feels an emotional attachment to this man, and we don't even know who he is... We just know that Chris may save his life, and life is precious.

Section 2: Knitting
I went to knitting group last Thursday and the gang was there...I brought Boogie, as promised, to have them teach me to seam...Amy was such a brilliant whiz and helped me right away. I have one word for her, Goddess! She is a great teacher b/c I am sewing invisible seams already :)Here is a photo...Can you see the seam? I can't either! Thanks Amy....

While we were busy doing that Martha and Sheryl looked on. Sheryl is our resident crocheter and she taught me the single crochet for edging Boogie.... After a half hour of that I gave up! My yarn kept splitting and my hook was to big to get a proper fit in the stitches!
I haven't knitted since then! eek, and I haven't started my knitting olympics tank top! gees, may have to miss out the gold medal this year :( I will try to cast on tonight before bed!

Section 3:Big Secret
I know you guys forgot about it until now! Sorry to leave you hanging, guess I shouldn't have brought it up ;) I didn't want to wait any longer to post, so secret still remains zipped up until next post.

Update I have decided to let the cat out of the bag...We told the knitting group so I can only surmmize that it only fair I tell you guys my good news:) Amy and Sheryl are opening a yarn shop in April... They have asked me If I would sell some of my knitting accessories in Yarntopia! I nearly flipped out :) Now granted they haven't even got their first sample yet, I am sooooo excited!.....I think candsmom is the only one who has commented so far, sorry to pop this news on here after her read ;)

That's such amazing news about Chris! Life is certainly precious and Chris is a hero for donating his marrow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out for the best. Boogie looks wonderful! Amy seems like such an awesome teacher- just look at that beautiful bag her little girl knit! ;-) Your seams are invisible and wonderful! :-) Looking forward to the big reveal next time! Take care! :-)
